Join us for the final session of our four-part virtual presentation series at the Auburn Public Library with author and Chronicle reporter Ted Reinstein.
Based on Ted’s long-running “Who Knew” series on “Chronicle,” this 45-minute virtual talk with photos shares with viewers some of Ted’s favorite people and places which manage to fly just below the radar for most folks. Ever hear of Guido Nincheri? How about Annie Smith Peck? No? Exactly. Know where to find the Madison Boulder or who winds the South Station clock? No? Join the club!
Now, join the smaller club of New Englanders who know some really cool facts and stories about their region. From Boston to the White Mountains, Providence to Salem, Ted turns a spotlight on things that fascinate, amaze, and inspire. Meet the man who faithfully keeps the clock high about South Station running on-time. (Well, actually three minutes fast.) Meet the woman who was an actual real-life Indiana Jones—and has a peak named after her in South America to prove it! Learn that none other than Rudyard Kipling spent four years in the hills of southern Vermont—and find out what drove him out, never to return. And be awed by the “Sistine Chapel of North America”—right there in downtown Woonsocket, Rhode Island.
Thursday January 14th | 7:00-8:00pm Register from www.auburnlibrary.org or call the Library for assistance. View Ted’s presentation from the comfort of your home as he brings us along on his remarkable reflective journey of experiences that caused him to say “Who Knew?”
